Ex-Illini Jereme Richmond on NBA, Weber

Former Illinois men’s basketball player Jereme Richmond, who left school last season for the NBA but went undrafted, sat down with BTN producers to talk about life and his future in basketball. Richmond shot 53 percent from the field and averaged 7.6 points, five rebounds and 1.8 assists per game as a freshman in 2010-11. See a clip of Richmond talking about his pro prospects now and watch him talk about his former coach, Bruce Weber, in this post. Richmond on Bruce Weber:

Minnesota's Andre Hollins

Stanford downs Minnesota in NIT finals

(AP) Stanford’s young guards Chasson Randle and Aaron Bright each scored 15 points, and the Cardinal routed Minnesota 75-51 to win the NIT title Thursday night. Stanford forced two turnovers to open the second half to take a 10-point lead and stayed up by double figures the rest of the way. The Golden Gophers turned it over 22 times on the night. Rodney scored a team-high 12 points while Austin Hollins and Joe Coleman both added 10. Read the full AP recap, see the box score and get Tom Dienhart’s analysis.

John Groce

Dienhart: Illinois hires Ohio's John Groce

What has been anticipated for a few days became reality Thursday as Illinois named Ohio’s John Groce as its men’s basketball coach. Will it be a good hire? A bad hire? Who knows? It’s absurd to draw a conclusion on something like that on the day of an introductory press conference. But a few things are without dispute. No. 1: The hiring process has come under great scrutiny, as the search seemingly lingered as other targets rejected overtures from Illinois athletic director Mike Thomas. That has caused angst among many fans and media pundits, who feel it hasn’t been a

Michigan's Denard Robinson

Football Fix: Talking Michigan Football

As far as debuts go, Brady Hoke’s was a hit at Michigan. Hoke sauntered into Ann Arbor and ripped off a stunning 11-2 mark, finishing second in the Legends Division and capping the remarkable season with a triumph over Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl. It almost made memories of the mercurial three-season Rich Rodriguez tenure vanish. Almost. Now, the question begs: What will Hoke do for an encore? I talked to three top writers who cover Big Blue to gather their thoughts on Michigan’s to-do list this spring. A little primer: The Wolverines have holes to answer. The most

William Buford

Buford key to Ohio State's Final Four fate

(AP) When it comes to unpredictable, game-changing performers at a Final Four, most of the time the discussion revolves around a precocious freshman. Ohio State fans, however, have grown accustomed to warily keeping an eye on the Buckeyes’ lone senior. Which William Buford will show up? [View the interactive NCAA bracket] Will it be the one who lit up Purdue for 29, Northwestern for 28, Kansas for 21 in the first meeting and Duke for 20? The cool team leader who hit a nerveless shot at the buzzer with a hand in his face to earn the Buckeyes a share

Bill O'Brien

Roundtable: Talking Penn State Football

For the first time since 1965, Penn State will have a new coach prowling the sideline. Joe Paterno was forced out amid scandal late in the 2011 season—and subsequently died. In steps Bill O’Brien, a first-time head coach who comes freshly minted from the New England Patriots, where he served as offensive coordinator for arguably the NFL’s top franchise. Paterno was in his fourth season as Penn State head coach when O’Brien, 42, was born in 1969. O’Brien last coached in college in 2006, when he was offensive coordinator for Duke under Ted Roof—now Penn State’s defensive coordinator–before leaving for

Wisconsin's Bret Bielema

See Wednesday's best B1G spring football links

Big doing today, as the Danny O’Brien sweepstakes have ended with the Maryland quarterback picking Wisconsin. This is two years in a row the Badgers will welcome an ACC QB transfer. Russell Wilson from N.C. State worked out pretty good. If O’Brien is anywhere close to Wilson, 2012 will be a fun year in Madison. Fire up the grill and open the brats! Find more on that and other happenings in this post. PLENTY TO SMILE ABOUT: If you see Bret Bielema smiling today, here’s why: The aforementioned O’Brien has committed to the Badgers. The Badgers have a gnawing void

Curt Miller

Indiana makes Miller 9th women's hoops coach

Indiana University Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass announced Wednesday the  hiring of Curt Miller, who owns the 16th-best winning percentage in NCAA Division I history, as IU’s new head women’s basketball coach. Glass and Miller agreed to a six- year contract, starting at a salary of $275,000 per year. [Illinois hired Matt Bollant as its head coach Wednesday] “We are thrilled to have been able to recruit a coach of Curt’s caliber to Indiana University,” Glass said. “Curt is very highly regarded in women’s basketball circles and has a demonstrated ability to recruit in and around

Nebraska's Taylor Martinez

Football Report: Film with Beck; Gholston 1-on-1

Tuesday night on “Big Ten Football Report,” Gerry DiNardo visited Lincoln, Neb., to catch up with Nebraska offensive coordinator Tim Beck and watch film of the Cornhuskers’ offense this spring. Yes, quarterback Taylor Martinez’s progression as a passer was a popular topic. Also, Howard Griffith visited with Michigan State’s William Gholston, one of the nation’s most feared defenders. Watch Beck’s film session now and see our interview with Gholston in this post. Griffith sits down with Gholston:

Iowa's Kirk Ferentz

Football Fix: Kirk Ferentz Q&A

Who is the longest-tenured coach at his Big Ten school? It’s Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz, who is entering his 14th season in Iowa City. And as he embarks on another spring practice, he faces a unique set of challenges he never before has encountered. Chief among the challenges is developing chemistry on a coaching staff that long has been a beacon of stability but has been shaken up like never before on Ferentz’s watch. On top of the staff overhaul, Ferentz also has some key personnel issues to deal with this spring. I caught up with the Iowa coach this week
